The Good Stuff - Day Six

Nothing is more difficult, and therefore more precious, than to be able to decide.
Napoleon Bonaparte

Today is election day.  Did you get out and vote The Geek and I packed up our brood and headed to the polls earlier this evening.  Can I just say how much I hate "running the gauntlet" of last minute campaigners outside the voting precinct.  I wish I could just go in and do my civic duty without having to avoid eye contact or be forced to graciously accept/deny a cheap nail file or a flyer from some candidate making a last minute desperate plea for my vote. 

I won't share my political views here (I am so not in the mood for a political debate thank. you. very. much.) but I will say I am glad the campaigning is over.  Both sides remind my of my chicklets with their constant bickering and finger pointing.  As far as I'm concerned, they could both benefit from a little time in the ol' time-out chair.   

Anyone else as happy as I am that tonite signals the end of the nonstop campaign and political ads?  Can I get a "woooo hooooo" ?  Those blasted commercials drive me nuts.  I don't know about you, but I shudder to think of how much money was wasted on the stupid things.  Gah!

Today's good stuff?
The return of silly commercials.
this one was always one of my favorites
